Doctor’s Course

Doctor’s CourseStudents will be awarded the Doctor of Philosophy in Agriculture (Ph.D. Agr.) on completion of a satisfactory thesis. To be awarded a Ph.D., students must complete a six-semester course over a three-year period. The course consists of tutorials and tutorial exercises, usually given in a seminar format. Students must conduct thesis research under the supervision of advisory faculty members, and will be expected to have some of their work published in scientific journals.

Students must submit their thesis in English to the committee of the course. Oral presentation of the thesis is required in the spring semester of the third year.
